Elegy 'In Memoriam Peter Sculthorpe'

By Harry Sdraulig

Regular price $35.00 Sale

Strings and percussion
Scored for full strings, timpani and percussion (including anvil and vibraphone).
Elegy ‘In Memoriam Peter Sculthorpe’ was written in commemoration of one of Australia’s most inventive and influential composers, whose passing on August 8, 2014 was deeply felt by the countless musicians and audiences to have been touched by the integrity, humanity and beauty of his music. 
Though this piece contains a few deliberate references to Peter Sculthorpe’s music, especially through the use of percussion (reminiscent of Earth Cry) and the desolate spirituality of the cello solo at the work’s heart, the composer has avoided any attempt at imitation or pastiche, instead composing a work true to his own individual language. It is nevertheless written with heartfelt respect for a man whose influence on the landscape of Australian art music is unparalleled.
Composed 2015

Sacred Prelude, Op.1

By Jonathan Little

Regular price $55.00 Sale

String quintet. A natural rubato is felt throughout this haunting, single-movement, chamber work. Its much darker than usual instrumentation sees two violas and two cellos set against only one violin (which sometimes, like a single voice, soars high above the texture). The sound is reminiscent of that of ancient church music. c.10'00

Recorded on "Masterworks of the New Era" Vol.10 (ERM 6812) Soloists of the Czech Philharmonic / Robert Ian Winstin (see: www.amazon.com)

Tallawarra

By John Peterson

Regular price $60.00 Sale

String Quartet, c.4'00
The surging 11/8 rhythm dominates the work and propels the music along, while the melodic lines, in their sinuous way, try to reflect the original meaning of the Aboriginal word, Tallawarra - "slippery place".
Tallawarra was commissioned by Musica Viva Australia as part of the "Australian Miniatures" Project for Musica Viva Australia?s International Series in 2000.
